Hulk wants to leave Zenit St Petersburg.

The Brazil striker has nine goals in 14 league games for Zenit this season and appears settled in Russia.

However, Izvestia says Hulk has told Zenit directors he wants to leave at the end of the season - if not sooner.

Hulk hopes if a reasonable offer arrives for him next month, Zenit won't block his departure.

The centre-forward is a favourite of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, while he has also been linked with Manchester United and Tottenham this year.

Agent Teodoro Fonseca said: "Hulk is very happy at Zenit. He has a great relationship with Luciano Spalletti and all the other players. Hulk has high hopes for this season.

"On offers from other teams, I do not want to comment ..."
